Neve Campbell

Birth Name: Neve Adrianne Campbell

Place of Birth: Guelph, Ontario, Canada

Date of Birth: 3 October, 1973

*Scottish (father)
*Dutch, with some Sephardi Jewish (mother)

Neve Campbell is a Canadian actress.

Neve is the daughter of Marnie Neve and Gerry Campbell. Her brother, Christian Campbell, is also an actor. Her mother also acts. Neve has two children with her partner, American-British actor JJ Feild.

Her father is a Scottish emigrant, from Glasgow. Her mother is a Dutch emigrant, from Amsterdam. Neve has stated that her mother’s maiden name, Neve, comes from Sephardi Jewish ancestors, who moved to the Netherlands and later converted to Catholicism. Neve herself is Catholic. She has also said, “my lineage is Jewish, so if someone asks me if I’m Jewish, I say yes.” It is not clear how distant her Sephardi Jewish ancestry is.

Neve can be a Sephardi Jewish surname. In Italian, it means “snow,” and in Hebrew and Arabic, it means “oasis.”

  1. it was 10 years ago when i was a huge WILL AND GRACE fan

    and i met the actress of rosario in person and i was sure she is a Latina woman she played in that show

    but that evening when i came home i googled her name and found out that she is Sephardi Jewish

    Neve Campbell is cute and i think she looks special even she has small amount of Sephardi

    If she were unknown and a friend would bring her to me home and introduce her as CAMPANILLA the Ladina speaking and Kosher Nacho cheese corn meal cook it would believe him

  2. some people here are really stupid and think that brits and scottish people are all looking like WILLY from THE SIMPSONS with blue eyes and red hair

    1. I agree. Unless they have been here (the UK) how the hell do they know what people look like here? There are all types of looks here, and I’m not including people of obvious foreign blood. Celts, Anglos-Saxons, Normans, Vikings, etc have all mixed over the last thousand plus years.

          1. Have you been to Scotland? I’m Scottish and there are loads of dark haired people here, as well as lots of people with brown eyes. If she lived here nobody in Scotland nobody would think for a second she was anything other than Scottish.
